Throwback Thursdays Book Edition #1: I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I Would Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

I hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday.  I am going to be starting a new series on my blog entitled "Throwback Thursdays: Book Edition" in which I will be discussing and doing mini-reviews of books and series that I have read in the past.  I was part of a quiz bowl team in high school for books that were nominated for the Georgia Peach Teen Readers' Choice Award Nominees.  The first book that I am going to discuss is I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter.  This book is part of the Gallagher Girls series.  I first read this book as part of the quiz bowl team I was part of in high school and I reread this book recently.

General Analysis

Author: Ally Carter

Publish Date: August 20th, 2009

Genre: Young Adult Mystery Chick-Lit 

Plot:  Cammie Morgan is a student at Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, an all girls' school for spies.  Her mom is the headmistress and her classes are challenging, but she finds that the hardest challenge is falling in love. 

Overall Thoughts: I really enjoyed this super cute YA book.

In Depth Analysis

This book is a really enjoyable, light read.  The characters are detailed and the plot is simple, but I feel like this is a very well written book.  There was a lot of cheesy humor and I am usually not a big fan of cheesy humor, but it is well placed and it did put a smile on my face.  The romance is cute and tween feeling.  The book left a very good impression on me when I finished it.  I cannot wait to read the rest of the Gallagher Academy series.

Final Statements

Recommended Reading Age:  This is a perfect book for tweens.  There is nothing inappropriate.

Overall Rating:  5/5
